Gold coins and bars worth around £30,000 have been stolen from a flat in Pyle, near Bridgend.
South Wales Police says they were taken between 4pm on Sunday 13 October and Tuesday 15 October, by somebody who had gained access through a kitchen window.
DS Paul Mason said: "The property stolen is very distinctive. We believe the person who stole the items will try to sell it on to a collector or will try to weigh the gold in for cash. We are appealing for people working in pawn shops and cash-for-gold type set-ups to be vigilant."
“We are also appealing to anybody who suspects they know who was responsible to come forward. Perhaps they have come across the maroon velvet bag. Of course, anyone who buys the items face being prosecuted for handling stolen goods.”
Anyone with information is urged to call South Wales Police on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
